Member Ratings and Notes
Sweet medicinal iodine with nice campfire smokes.  Deeply sweet with a metalic earthy/dirty element.  Finish is short and fleeting.  It gets a B+ but just barely. 
Nose is gauze and iodine, seems rather Laphroaig-like. Palate is malt and caramel.  Finish is quick and a little bitter. OK. 
Less impressive than the other Lagavulin DE's.  Smoky, sweet, and medicinal, as expected, but the sherry finish in this case seems to have killed some of the complexity that makes Lagavulin great.   
Buttered lobster.  Long green finish.  A-/B+  
Smotth, like apple juice.
Flat, sure, but still pretty good.
